quick note that after a 30 mile run this morning, I do notice more snappiness. It is kinda weird, when I originally put the 605'* in to get by until I got another iridium I noticed it was alot peppier than usual. When I stuck the iridiums in, we took off on a little trip of about 160 miles for the day and it didn't feel the same. I'll be leaving the 605'* in.

OK.. So I went to get plugs for Tamara'* 95 N/A @ Crappy Tire.. deciced to get NGK "G-plug I think.. platinum" and it stated already TR55GP as stock.. err.. so that mean it'* already one heat range cooler? Also I notice there was a few variance on TR55'* For irridums there'* TR55-1A TR55 XXXX <-- something else in the end. WTF

Copper plugs are preferred over Irridiums in Supercharged cars. They dissipate heat more quickly.

NGK TR6 gapped at .050" for 2 heatranges colder

Or the Autolite plugs (copper).
Will, what NGK plug do you recommend(and gap) for a 100% stock sc'95Bonn. and where do ya get them,need to change mine out it'* been awile was just going to run to the gm garage and get some ACs Thanks!

Aim to the NGK TR55'*. The stock gap as they are gapped correctly for the car. Pick them up anywhere locally..they should be cheap.
